Viagogo AC/DC problem

My dad as always promised me that if AC/DC ever play the UK again we'll be there regardless.

December 17th 10am I'm in my phone, card ready, to buy tickets. Ticketmaster run out and recommend I see if viagogo have any. So £305 later I have two GA tickets for AC/DC ON JULY 4th at Wembley.

So in the mean time we booked hotel train tickets for the big day. We were told we can expect to have the tickets 3 days before the event, which is today.

I got a phone call from an unknown caller, it was viagogo regarding my tickets. The seller has let us down. So they have offered "restricted view seats and the £305 in vouchers for viagogo".

I'm completely !!!!ed off that I couldn't even put this day together for my dad I'm so !!!!ing mad rn and I have no clue what to do about this as I couldn't sit in these restricted seats knowing its my fault we're not down in GA.

Please help


  • I started writing this post then realised that the gig has already happened. Oh well, as it's written you might as well have my 2p's worth anyway!

    First of all, don't ever buy from Viagogo again, they're the legitimate face of touting but - as you can see - they don't always deliver.

    Secondly, take the restricted view seats as insurance. At least you'll be there, and you can always have a word at the box office on the day to see if they have any better seats they can move you to.

    Thirdly, check official ticketing outlets for availability in the run-up to the gig. Bigger venues frequently release extra tickets once they've finalised the stage setup, allocated spaces for guests and so on. I've landed great seats to gigs this way more than once before.

    Fourthly, for a big venue like Wembley there are bound to be people who can't go selling their tickets at or close to face value. Keep an eye on Gumtree, Scarlet Mist and Twickets (on Twitter). You can also check fan forums.
